Our goal and passion is to help you be successful. This is especially true with a “start-up” business as the owner or owners have much to deal with in the process of getting their business up and running with a minimal number of business knowledge barriers. As a part of this process, we are here for those individuals to provide them advisory and coaching services. Why? Because in most cases those new business owners “don’t know what they don’t know” or just don’t know what questions to ask. This is not uncommon. Now they have to deal with accounting and tax issues that they have not had to deal with before. Bottom line….we want to share valuable information and best practices while keeping this process simple and effective.
So why is this so important to us to play a strong role in the start-up process? Because all too often those new owners end up incurring expenses they could have avoided or they end up paying more taxes than they should have because they weren’t structured properly from a tax standpoint. Because of our competitive nature, we absolutely do not want to see that happen. Although many would look at us as “number crunchers” or the proverbial “left brain for hire” type, we have much to share with you as a business advisor and coach to enhance your ability to be more successful in your new business venture.
We provide added value to our clients by offering QuickBooks expertise. Our QuickBooks ProAdvisor certifications ensure that we can effectively guide you on system setup, navigation and features…as well as ensure that you maximize the power of the system to keep your books in order.
